From time to time we all have a topic we want to discuss and are not sure where to ask/discuss it. While Boards.ie has a multitude of forums for pretty much every thing you would want to talk about sometimes it's nice to discuss it in your own forum with the people you regularly talk to.
As such the Mods have created this Off Topic Thread.
The premise is simple. If you have something that is not shooting related or tentatively related then post it here. The same forum rules apply and any topics that are illegal or prohibited on the main forum or the site are also prohibited here. It's also not a "work around" for the toher forums. IOW if you have a specific shooting related query or item to sell then use the main forum or for sale section.
This thread will be for general chat, shooting the breeze, and just a way to have a non specific, or specific, chat about anything you want among those you are used to talking to.
Have at it.
With the new "Alien" movie just released in Irish movie theatres any suggestions as to how ye would go about trapping or removing an alien lifeform from the environment.
I'd get him in a headlock.
Thank Cass. But it is the hunting/ shooting forum. Lol.
That it is so lets get down to brass tacks.
- Flame thrower
- Pulse rifle
- Robotic pallet truck
- Shaved head (optional)
Once you have these lure it into the area by making use of a freight elevator. Now here is the tricky part. You need to build an interstellar ship, get it onto the ship and then push it out the airlock.
If you need any help give me a shout and we'll see what we can come up with.
Excellent. When I heard the Alien movie was out l just had to put the notion of hunting it on the shooting forum. Tis a pity you could not leave there a bit just to see what ideas lads/lassies would come up with.
A Beretta or Benelli semi auto 12 gauge, feeding from a 20 round drum magazine.
Firing magnesium tipped sabots, comprised mainly of compressed baking soda.
Hopefully the strongly alkaline baking soda would destroy their acidic blood...... And if the magnesium could be ignited,even better.
Aah Cass , get a life, everyone knows they are suckers for peanut butter ! A slap of a yard brush when they're not looking and licking their fingers - none of your fandangle s#*te for me when I'm dealing with them !
You forgot the squad of gung ho Space Marines,led by an idiot 1st LT[Anyone of that rank is generally an idiot anyway!] ,an android and a non stop screaming little ten year old girl. Oh and a serious workout for arm strength,for when you open said airlock to blast the alien out into space,so you can hang onto the access ladder,along with screaming 10 year old little girl,half an android,and the alien queen who has a grip on your leg while you battle a 200 mph hurricane wind of the air being sucked out of the ship.
How Aliens should have ended
Step 1 - Test for, and destroy any androids you find in your team or among people who you encounter. Then test again...
Step 2 - go do what you planned, you are safe now!
If i have to listen to one more TD sing the praises of Kenny and others i'm going to puke.
But that's inbred into us as a race Cass..You are a hero when you are going or dead.We seem to like our heros very dead or retired.. Maybe statues are cheap here in Ireland,rather than supporting or aiding the champ when they are alive??
But yes the hyprocrisy and sycopanthy is vomit inducing alright.
They cite his "excellence" in bringing Ireland out of recession however no one has addressed the manner in which it was done. Homelessness figures have doubled, 750,000 people below the poverty line (20% of whom are actually working).
Lets not forget one Garda Commissioner gone and another one on the way out. Trust and respect for the force at an all time low. Our defense forces having to apply for social protection or other benefits to simply provide for their families. Then of course Irish water. A tax we have all been paying for since 1997, but somehow we have to pay a third time.
Banks bailed out endlessly, billions in tax being refused, corruption exposed but not prosecuted, vulture funds buying up our country piece by piece and NAMA selling off the rest for pennies.
Now we have Varadkar and Coveney seeking the top spot. Varadkar who recently asked for people to ring in and report people they believe are committing social protection fraud. He cited this fraud at €500 MILLION per year. The official figures say it's more like €49 million and that over 60% of the "loss" of monies occur from error payments the department makes and claims made in error. IOW genuine mistakes and not fraud. Or Coveney who cannot seem to get the number right, of houses actually built (must be related to Diane Abbott).
I was at a jobs fair thing in Dublin Castle last year. Varadkar appeared for a photo op, the amount people debasing themselves, fawning over him would make you barf.
He tries to be Mr. Niceguy/the only gay in the village, but he is a nasty individual underneath, and i don't think any government lead by him will last long.
